Hot Topic Deep Space Cosmic Evolution
 
Clockwork Motion In Nearby Galaxy
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/22/14
Using the sharp-eyed NASA Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have for the first time precisely measured the rotation rate of a galaxy based on the clock-like movement of its stars.

Four New Galaxy Clusters Take Us Further Back in Time
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/18/14
Four unknown galaxy clusters each potentially containing thousands of individual galaxies have been discovered some 10 billion light years from Earth.

The Oldest Star in the Known Universe
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/17/14
A team led by astronomers at The Australian National University has discovered the oldest known star in the Universe, which formed shortly after the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago.

A 'Snow Globe' Solar System
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/11/14
A new study on asteroid diversity is providing clues about the tumultuous past of the Solar System.

Weather Map of Distant World Could Shed New Light on Planets
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/06/14
Researchers have mapped the surface of a brown dwarf -- an object larger than a planet and smaller than a star -- for the first time. Studying the weather on a distant world -- where it rains molten iron -- could help scientists to better understand weather patterns in other solar systems.

Solving a 30-Year-Old Problem in Massive Star Formation
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/02/14
An international group of astrophysicists has found evidence strongly supporting a solution to a long-standing puzzle about the birth of some of the most massive stars in the universe.

How Circumbinary Planets Form
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/02/14
A new study sheds light on the formation of planets that orbit two stars.

Milky Way May Have Formed 'Inside-Out'
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
01/20/14
New research suggests that stars in the inner regions of the Galactic disc were the first to form, supporting ideas that our Galaxy grew from the inside-out.

'Super-Earths' May Have Oceans & Continents
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
01/19/14
A new model suggests that large exoplanets may have both oceans and exposed continents -- conditions that could lead to an Earth-like stable climate.

The Universe to 1-Percent Accuracy
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
01/14/14
The Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) has measured the scale of the universe to an accuracy of one percent. This and future measures at this precision are the key to determining the nature of dark energy.
